  • "We loved the house. It was perfect for our family reunion. The pool was awesome! The children and adults loved swimming in it morning, noon and night. We found all sorts of wildlife on the beach. Walking into town, shopping and miniature golf were great. Thanks for sharing your house!"

The location is great and there was much to do resulting in the week going by too quickly. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us."

  • "We were a bit concerned about a family vacation in an historic landmark, but this is a beautifully livable house.  Cooking was a pleasure in the best equipped kitchen we’ve ever had, and we’ve had 20 years of experience.  It was as if our hostess had anticipated every need!"

  • "What another wonderful time! We found our laughing place, our happy place, and our peaceful place. Making family memories and enjoying a home away from home. Many thanks!......Thank you again for another wonderful vacation! I’ve been in the wonderful carriage house for 10 days and really hate to leave in the morning. But I’m refreshed and renewed and ready for anything now!"

    Beaching, fishing, golfing and a grand celebration at the Jekyll Island Club were part of our adventure.

    Anyone lucky enough to discover this wonderful house will have memories for a lifetime."
